Klezmer: Book One: Tales of the Wild East
Joann Sfar (au) (il) ; Alexis Siegel (tr)
Meet Noah Davidovich and his unlikely band of musicians: Chava, a young woman who follows Noah away from her village; Yaacov, a student whose rabbi has banished him from his yeshiva; Vincenzo, a wandering Italian fiddler; and Tshokola, a gypsy pursued by Cossacks. Here, Sfar evokes the Jewish communities of pre-WW2 Eastern Europe and the itinerant Klezmer musicians who performed at celebrations, festivals, and cabarets. Following in the tradition of Isaac Bashevis Singerís short stories and Yiddish folktales, Sfarís characters personify the multifarious influences that have poured into the music of Klezmer, and into the Yiddish tongue. Compact graphic novel format. Full-color illustrations.
